LibriVox recording of Esther Waters by George Moore, read by LibriVox volunteers, proofed by Karen Merline and Tricia G, coordinated by Miss Stav and Bridget Gaige, and produced by Karen Merline.

"She stood on the platform watching the receding train. A few bushes hid the curve of the line; the white vapour rose above them, evaporating in the pale evening. A moment more and the last carriage would pass out of sight. The white gates swung forward slowly and closed over the line". Thus opens the novel about Esther Waters, young, pious woman from a poor working class family who, while working as a kitchen maid, is seduced by another employee, becomes pregnant, is deserted by her lover, and against all odds decides to raise her child as a single mother. Esther Waters is one of a group of Victorian novels that depict the life of a "fallen woman". It is considered to be Moore's best novel. Moore lived from 1852 to 1933(Summary from Wikipedia, revised by Stav Nisser.)

Subject: A tough one to rate
Wow this was a long book. I honestly felt that I could have bypassed chapters 26 - 44. It just went on and on and on about the horse racing stuff. The first part of the book I felt was good. Watching Esther struggle and seeing where the story would take her. The last half of the book was tedious. I wanted to kick Esther for some of her choices. The end of the story seemed to fall a bit short as well after those long winded 20 odd chapters of horse betting nonsense. The narration in spots was poor. I love Lars Rolander and Bridget, they are both enjoyable. I did not enjoy two of the other narrators who had very poor sound quality combined with difficult accents.
